Advising for New Transfers

Welcome to the UCI School of Humanities! All new transfer students are required to attend an academic advising session; however, as all sessions have now passed, students must complete web advising to enroll for the Fall Quarter.

All students completing web advising must also attend the Mandatory Follow-Up Advising Session on Wednesday, September 25th. Specific details regarding the time and location of the session will be sent to the UCI emails of required attendees in September.

HOW TO COMPLETE HUMANITIES WEB ADVISING

    1) ACTIVATE YOUR UCI NETID

    2) FILL OUT AND SUBMIT THE HUMANITIES TRANSFER ADVISING SURVEY AND SUBMIT UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS FROM ALL COLLEGES YOU HAVE ATTENDED BY JULY 15
    You will need to log in to the survey using your UCI NetID and password. All unofficial transcripts will need to be uploaded within the survey.
     NOTE: The unofficial transcripts requested in the survey are separate from and, in addition to, the official transcripts you are required to submit to the Office of Admissions and Relations with Schools. You are still required to send your official records to the Office of Admissions by the deadline stated on your Admissions offer.

    3) WATCH THE HUMANITIES TRANSFER ADVISING WEBINAR 
    Once your survey and your unofficial transcripts are received, you will receive an email within 2-3 business days with information on how to complete web advising. Please watch the entire webinar, take notes, and pay careful attention.  You will be held responsible for knowing all of the provided information!

    4) SUBMIT THE WEB ADVISING VERIFICATION FORM 
    This form is linked on the final slide of the Humanities Transfer Advising Webinar. You will need your UCInetID and password to log in to the form. 

    5) SIGN UP FOR CLASSES BY SEPTEMBER 1, 2019 
    You will receive an email to your UCI email address, to which you will have access once you activate your UCInetID, within 3-5 business days of submitting your Web Advising Verification Form.  This email will contain a personalized suggested Fall Quarter schedule and further instructions on how to register for classes. 

    6) ATTEND THE MANDATORY FOLLOW-UP ADVISING SESSION ON SEPTEMBER 25, 2019 
    Specific details regarding the time and location of the Mandatory Follow-Up Advising Session will be sent to your UCI email in September.

ENSURING SUCCESS AT THE ADVISING SESSION

    To ensure your advising session is as productive and successful as possible, please be sure to complete the following steps before attending a session:
    Take Any Necessary Placement Tests: You may need to take a language placement exam.  As a Humanities major, you are required to complete two years of college-level language other than English (or show equivalent competence).  If you completed the fourth semester of a college-level language other than English (Intermediate/II) with a grade of C or better, that will satisfy the requirement.  If you have Advanced Placement (AP) credit, please refer to the Advanced Placement Chart in the UCI General Catalogue to determine if you have completed the requirement.  Otherwise, please review the information below and, if necessary, visit the Academic Testing Center website for test registration dates and details. 
    If you are planning to enroll in:

      • Spanish – You must take a placement exam unless you have no prior background in the language. Visit the Academic Testing Center website for test registration dates and details.
      • Chinese, Japanese, or Korean – You must take a placement exam regardless of your background in the language.  Visit the Academic Testing Center website for test registration dates and details.
      • French, German, Italian, or Russian – Placement exams are not required, though for students who have background in French or German, the placement exam is strongly recommended to ensure success in UCI courses.  Visit the Academic Testing Center website for test registration dates and details.
      • Greek and Latin – You must contact Dr.Andrew Zissos to discuss placement if you have any experience in Latin or Greek.
      • Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, or Vietnamese – You must complete a language background questionnaire and contact the Humanities Language Learning Program to discuss placement, regardless of your background in the language.
      • Armenian – You must complete a placement exam if you have a background in the language. Visit the Academic Testing Center website for test registration dates and details.

    Review Campus, School, and Major Requirements: The 2019-2020 UCI General Catalogue will be available online in early-July.  The Catalogue contains valuable information about UCI, your academic field, and UCI's policies and regulations.  You are responsible for knowing and adhering to the policies contained in the Catalogue.
    View the New Student Handbook: This website is a great introduction to UCI and will help ensure that you complete everything required of new students.
    Check Your UCI Email: You will be notified when your UCI email account is available.  Be sure to check it regularly throughout the summer for important messages.  If you have any questions about your account, please visit the Office of Information Technology (OIT) website.
    Check the UCI MyAdmission Site: Be sure to check this site regularly for Admissions updates.
